So I'm "working" from home the rest of the day today (I work from home every other Wednesday) and coincidentally Friday afternoon (our building is directly next to the Superdome so we have to leave by 1 pm) so it's just a good of a time as any to watch the last seven episodes of season 2.
Agreed. Not much happened. The best part to me was the intro. But happy it's back on. This, The Americans, and Fargo are making TV interesting for me again in the spring after a ridiculously bad Walking Dead winter finale.
So, I take it that this is what will trigger Jimmy's full transformation into Saul. He's going to have to play dirty to get out of this. Kim will realize that despite how much she cares for Jimmy, separating herself from him is what will be best for her career. I assume this whole trial will play out over the season.
I'm so happy that Vince, the network, and Odenkirk had the guts to do a spinoff of one of the most iconic shows of the new golden era of television. While there have been plenty of fantastic series since The Sopranos birthed this new era of TV, I can't recall a single attempt at a serial drama spinoff. Probably because the result could be disastrous and taint the legacy of the original. But BCS is definitely not that.
The very small criticism of the last show I had was with Gus. He stepped out of the car all dappered up like a mob boss which went against the low-profile portrayal of him in BB. They kind of played to the audiences knowledge of who he is. Plus, he looks much older. Which is an unfair criticism, but it still ruins it a little for me.

This is the problem I've always had with prequels. Bob Odenkirk hasn't aged quite so well either. Only way it really works is if it's all recast for a much earlier time, but even that can be just as distracting.
I agree withe BCS being better than Breaking Bad this far in. This season has just been top level, Breaking Bad had pretty clumsy writing for the first few seasons, I thought, but BCS has been a true masterclass in writing. Just fucking excellent. This is slow burn story telling at its best.
We have been on a Twin Peaks/Breakin Bad/BCS binge. I am finally caught up. Better Call Saul is outstanding. I love the relationship between Saul and Chuck... I was sympathizing with Chuck until he took it too far. I like this show as much as BB.
